Walter Kirby Competition 2020

Walter Kirby Competition 2020

On 4 August, Sacred Heart College hosted the 84th annual Walter Kirby Music Competition. Once again the boys demonstrated their amazing musical abilities. This year the turnout was the largest in Walter Kirby history both in the number of students competing and in the size of the audience. Our judge this year was Mike Young.

There were a few stand out performances; Peter O’Sullivan, Jonathan Xu, Samuel Mataele and Andres Olan in particular.

A big thank you to everyone who supported us on the night.
